  We have your daily dose of “hate bait” right here. It’s called “Babes for Trump,” and it is both vomit-inducing and emotionally disturbing. The “Babes for Trump” Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram accounts display numerous photos of half-naked, bikini-clad, cleavage-baring women with different captions about supporting Donald Trump. Their mission: “Making America Great Again One Babe At A Time.” You may ask yourself how these women showing off their boobs and butts will contribute to making America great again. I certainly did.

Ever found yourself frightened, biting your nails as a child wondering, “what would have happened to grandma if Little Red Riding Hood had been packing?” Fear no more, the NRA has found fairy tale classics to not really be spot on in teaching children about morals and values. I mean really, Hansel and Gretel shouldn’t be gluttons talking to strangers and literally eating a house, but what’s missing from this story is that these children should be carrying a guns.
